Identity Expression in Rebel Music

My objectives with these conversations were to share a story about rebelmusics or Rebel Music, to contribute to the conversation about what Rebel music is, and to investigate how Rebel Music manifests itself in today’s world. I became inspired to tell this story through the strong but often overshadowed voices of the women in Hip-Hop Galsen (aka Senegalese Hip-hop). Creating this film allowed me to further explore the idea of expressing, rather than quantifying subjects in academic study, by providing access to the sounds, the language, and the ideas of the women in this project.

Accompanying this short film is an essay by the same title that was published on my blog
